Green Tag, 7th Kup

General Notes

The aim of this award syllabus is to keep junior students focussed and motivated, as they progress through the official ITF Taekwon-Do grading programme. There are ten grades from white belt (beginner level) to black belt (proficiency). Students advance to the next grade by taking a formal grading examination.

Junior students can take anything from five to twelve years to achieve black belt, depending on attendance, age and skill level. To keep juniors motivated between grading examinations, unique badge awards can be achieved by attending an assessment. It is possible for a student to achieve all badges at one assessment. However, junior students can take on average three assessments to achieve all badges. When all badges have been attained, juniors are then allowed to take a formal grading examination.

Green Tag Badge Awards

All of the following 10 badges must be achieved before students can attend a Grading Examination toGreen Belt (6th Kup). After achieving green tag, students must attend a minimum of twelve sessions (and a minimum of three months of training) before attending an assessment. Thereafter, if need be, students are recommended to attend a minimum of nine sessions before taking the next assessment.
